A worried Ashley frets over his wife’s mental state. Claire is refusing to see a doctor and won’t accept that she is ill. She continues to insist everything will be fine when she gets her own baby back. The social worker pays the Peacocks a visit, as does the GP who warns Ashley that in his opinion Claire is suffering from post-natal depression and needs treatment. He prescribes some medication for Claire and the troubled family take a walk to pharmacy to pick up the prescription. As they walk, Ashley raises the subject of getting Claire some professional help but Claire becomes very agitated and pushes her pram away from her. Ashley looks on in horror as the pram races onto the road and into on coming traffic. Will baby Thomas escape injury and how will Ashley deal with Claire’s latest out of character behaviour? Elsewhere, Liam continues to make his mark at the factory. He calls Hayley into his office for a chat and she is thrilled when he proposes that she take on more responsibility in her role as factory supervisor. However, having charmed Hayley, the crafty business man begins to quiz her for information about his new business partner Danny. Liam’s brother Paul later arrives at the factory to check up on his younger sibling and is pleased when Liam informs him that he has ditched Frankie. But this is a lie; Liam later chats to Frankie and the pair arrange another date. Is Liam playing with fire going against his brother’s advice to end his relationship with Frankie? Meanwhile, Fiz is unimpressed with boyfriend Kirk’s attempts to give her a driving lesson and Sean celebrates his 30th birthday.
